After their latest production, Oh My God! (OMG), Akshay Kumar and his production partner Ashvini Yardi are now on the lookout for new scripts. And interestingly, the the duo wants to experiment with new writers for the actor’s upcoming projects. To streamline the process, they have created two official email addresses, which Akshay plans on revealing officially two weeks from now. Screenwriters from across the world can then send them their scripts and ideas.

“As of now, they have already received about 50 scripts. While one email account is meant for Hindi writers, the other caters to regional talent. If they like a concept, then they will ask the writer to send them the complete story and then take the association forward,” says an insider.

Akshay will also be taking a weeklong break after the release of his next biggie, Khiladi 786, so that he can review the entries they have received so far.

“Right now, he is too caught up with the film’s promotional activities, but he has asked Ashvini to shortlist the ones she likes,” adds the insider. When contacted, Ashvini confirms the news, saying, “Yes, if we really like any of the stories that have been sent to us, we will definitely go ahead and produce the films. At Grazing Goat Pictures, we want to continue encouraging fresh talent in acting, direction and writing.”
